I'm a dual citizen of the United States and Canada. I have a social insurance number (Canada) and social security number (US). I have a great credit profile attached to the SIN, but no credit profile attached to the SSN.
This sometimes causes problems when I'm living in the US. Since my SIN has no credit history attached, I'm sometimes unable to rent things if the company doesn't have an alternative process for foreigners; that process often just being a large deposit.
Is there any way for me to copy my credit history in Canada over to the US, or is the only solution to take out a US credit card and start building a separate credit profile?
